Alan Blinder is Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University. He has been on the Princeton faculty since 1971, taking time off from January 1993 through January 1996 for service in the U.S. government—first as a member of President Clinton’s original Council of Economic Advisers, and then as Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

In January 2013, Professor Blinder published “After the Music Stopped: The Financial Crisis, the Response, and the Work Ahead” (Penguin), to wide critical acclaim.

In addition to his academic writings and his best-selling introductory textbook, he has written many newspaper and magazine columns and op-eds and, in recent years, has been a regular columnist for The Wall Street Journal. He also appears frequently on television on PBS, CNBC, CNN, Bloomberg, and others.

Professor Blinder is a Distinguished Fellow and past vice president of the American Economic Association, a past president of the Eastern Economic Association, and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, and the American Academy of Political and Social Science.

Our Comment

"Alan Blinder has been one of America’s foremost commentators on Fed and government policy in the aftermath of the financial crisis. His latest book, After the Music Stopped, was described by the New York Times as ‘terrific’ and as ‘the best comprehensive history of the financial crisis so far’ by the FT."
